    Thank you Kate and I am so very sorry about Daisy. I agree with you. We do the best we can and it is all we can do. Thank you for your warm wishes and your hugs. As I type this post Francesca is laying on me as Greg and I are sitting on the couch having coffee. I pray she has no clue what is going on with her health and that she is feeling OK and that she is in decent spirits. It is hard to tell but she seems content for now. We were able to give her the chemo liquid and antibiotics yesterday and so far so good. She is eating a bite every couple of hours so that works. She is getting up (and so are we to feed her haha) at 1 AM and 3 AM and we go downstairs each time to feed her. Rather Greg goes down to feed her. He is the best fur daddy. Here is a video of Francesca nursing him yesterday haha. She is precious.She nursed me too yesterday and drew blood with a love bite. She for some reason likes to give me love bites that are super hard. I do not mind. I will take all the love I can get. Bloody and all.:lol: Hey now my arm matches my toe.:P2



    What are your weekend plans?


    Thank you dear @marcy. I so appreciate your kindness. Yum to sugar cookies and donuts but sorry you didn't get a donut last night. Glad you are enjoying watching the Open at Pebble Beach. Hopefully you can go there soon and see them in person next year...Hope your Friday is good and that your knees are feeling good too.

    Thank you Sharon. Glad you are getting out and enjoying cycling and lovely weather. Thank you for your good wishes for Francesca. My ingrown nail is from my cycling accident when I broke those bones and the nail stopped growing for 8 months and when it started bam the ingrown nail started. And due to my poor circulation the doctor cannot permanently cauterize it or use chemicals to stop it from ingrowing so every few months I have to get the needles and nails torn out. It's still bleeding but I don't even care. All I care about is Francesca. Sorry my mood is down but I am holding onto hope somehow still for her even though it is against all odds.


    I am very sorry about your kidney stone and hope it passes on its own. My dh had a painful kidney stone and needed surgery but I know many more people where it passed on its own including my sister so hopefully that will be the case for you. Thinking good thoughts. Glad you got to enjoy gardening yesterday.

    @Calliecake
    Francesca's prognosis is worse than we thought. Her cancer is super aggressive and also very rare with hardly any case studies. Now we know the oral and injectable chemo she is currently on won't touch her cancer. Though Debbie said continue til we get an appointment at the oncology hospital near us. She is on a wait list and has an appointment in 2 weeks if she cannot get in sooner. Debbie said 2 weeks is too far away for her aggressive cancer but even when I was crying to the receptionist at the oncology hospital there was nothing she could do except put us on a wait list that has many others on that wait list. Francesca's future is looking very bleak. I am sure if you put can understand the agony Greg and I are going through. There are no miracles around and we cannot even get her in to see the oncologist we need to though probably that wouldn't help her anyway given her diagnosis. But she is our baby and of course we want to give her every chance while she is not suffering.

    @Slick1 thinking of you and hoping you are feeling well. Have fun this weekend at such a happy celebration. XO.

    @Mamabean how was your trip? Please share with us. I need some happy news.

    @AV_ what is on your schedule for today and the weekend?

    Have a nice day girls. XOXO.

    Girls just spoke with my sister. She is going to check if they have the CHOP chemo drug ( L-Asparaginase) in the office and if they do we are heading there tomorrow to IV administer it to Francesca. Debbie doesn't want her to wait 2 weeks for the consult without starting the IV chemo since her cancer is so aggressive. She doesn't think Frankie has 2 weeks left now. But it might not be in stock at her hospital since oncology is not their speciality and if that is the case it takes days to a week to order so we might be out of luck. Please continue to think good thoughts for our darling Francesca. Thank you.

    Hello lovelies

    @missy, I’m so sorry the prognosis is so bad, it’s just not fair. Hopefully if Debbie can get the IV chemo, it’ll buy you a little more time. I do believe that the only thing that matters to Francesca is that she’s with you, and is unaware of everything else. It’s good that she’s managing to eat a little, and although we already knew it, Greg is truly one in a million, getting up with her during the night. Nobody could do anymore for her than you two are already doing.

    Sorry on top of this, your poor toe is being a royal pain.

    Poor you @Calliecake, I understand passing a kidney stone is excruciating, I hope the other one passes without too much bother.

    Glad your teeth aren’t hurting anymore @marcy, we had a jam & cream doughnut yesterday, we allow ourselves one treat a week, or we’d both be huge! Sorry your knees are causing you bother, it’s literally a pain.

    Hope you had a great time with your gal pals @Mamabean and everything was ok on the home front when you got home.

    Great that you’re enjoying good enough weather to be able to get out cycling @canuk-gal.

    Hope you’re doing well with your infection treatment @Slick1, you must be looking forward to the summer holidays starting soon.

    How’re things with you @Tekate ? We’re gearing up for our trip, it’s coming up fast!

    Are you watching the golf @junebug17 , Justin Rose is doing well ATM?

    Well the latest is that Shirley is home and already complaining that her DIL is being bossy, I think she’s probably just trying to keep Shirley safe, but of course she can’t see that. I get the feeling that she’s behaving like a spoilt toddler. We’ll be resuming our weekly Skype sessions on Sunday, so I’ll have a better idea of what’s going on.

    We’ve had torrential rain for a couple of days, which has thrown up yet another problem :eek2: Colin had to get up on the orangery roof yesterday, because we found a damp spot on the interior wall. The gutters were clogged up, so he’s cleared them out, and the damp should dry out.

    No plans for the weekend, we’ve got things to sort out for the trip.

    Hope all the lovely NIRDIs are well :wavey:

    @missy love the pictures and video of Francesca! I love when cats love a person, they are sooo loving. I'm happy to read your sister may be able to get the CHOPs drug for you.. I'm shocked at reading 2 weeks Missy. As always I am sending you love Missy, and to Greg too btw. You please take care of yourself.

    We decided to go down and see Chris tomorrow and Kate not sure if dan,anne, en famile is going up to their Catskill house, I think so.. they are always late on replying to anything I text them so if I see them great, if not next time. I have no plans to see you at this time Missy, I would push it but me, I'd want this time with my family and my furbaby. Leaving tomorrow and coming back Tuesday. My ring should be here Tuesday. Not heard boo from WF, hoping that is good and not bad. Becca the sales girl said they will send glamour shots right before sending so I dunno, personally I think ther glamour shots are weird looking. Rainy chilly day so far. sending you the best love Missy.

    @Calliecake Hey Callie, please read the above re: Ever's arrival, basically I'm not sure.

    A KIDNEY STONE, I've not had one, don't want one but my sister had a few and she said it was less painful to have a baby, I hope you are feeling okay Callie. Lots of people get them but please just ensure your calcium level is normal, thank you if you can that is.

    @junebug17 Hola lady, happy Friday. xo

    @Austina Yay for the trip, as always, PICTURES please. I was looking at your pictures of your gorgeous stone and I would love to see more :) of course I am a pushy NYer..how's everyone feeling? I hope Austina sincerely that Shirley is just all screwed up and will straighten out as her grief abates or at least acceptance of her husbands death. Her DIL sounds like an angel. Rain rain go away! we have had it for 2 days now and enough is enough for me. xo girl.

    @Slick1 Happy Friday, hope you are well. xo

    @Mamabean how's things at the Rehoboth beach? my husband vacationed there every year as a kid. He loves it there! have a great weekend lady!

    @AV_ your day is 1/2 done, hope you are having a great friday!

    Christopher is a pain in my ass, but I love him :) :) I asked him if he wanted anything from Mom's bakery, he loves my coffee cake, so he texted back: "Christmas cookies", I wote back LOL, anything else? and he "can't think of anything".. so now, do I make Christmas cookies or do I made something and just bring it? well, I decided to make christmas cookies, because if I don't and bring something else he say something like "would you have done it for Mike?" and then laugh and say j/k Mom! ugh.. if I make a coffee cake he might say "I didn't want that".. ugh ugh.. he's a real pain in my derriere (yup I said ass above but I don't want to be REALLY continually crass) I made the dough last nite and I'll make them today (I hope and I can find the stupid cutouts, I didn't make them this past Christmas because i'm lazy)... so what a freaking 1st world stupid, assed, dumb problem, I obsess over the lamest stuff re: my sons.

    Looking forward to my ring arriving. I hope I like it. I'm sure I will, I think I will need to buy a thin platinum band to go with it, I don't really have a wedding band except a 14K gold thing that doesn't fit an I haven't worn since I was thin(ner) :)

    everyone have a great Friday. loves yoos all :)

    Thank you @sarahb for checking in and for caring about sweet Frankie girl.:kiss2:

    Thanks @junebug17, we appreciate your good wishes for Francesca. I am sorry this is bringing up such painful memories. I wish we didn't share so much in common when it comes to losing beloved furbabies.:( I hope you are doing well and feeling OK. One day at a time. It's all we can do.

    Thank you @Austina. I appreciate your good wishes. Yes definitely it's been a full week and sometimes feels overwhelming but I know we will do the best we can to take care of our sweet girl and we take it one day at a time. Life is filled with unpleasantness and heartache. It is the road we all travel at times. I just wish our francesca darling will be OK but I know that is impossible. Now I just want some extra quality time for her and with her. And we will not let her suffer above all else. I hope you are doing well and have a lovely weekend. Sounds like Shirley is doing OK.

    Thank you @Tekate. I am glad you are seeing Chris and Kate tomorrow. We are staying in NJ probably for the remainder of what is to be as it is nicer for Francesca at the beach. This is inconvenient true as I have doctor appointments in the city but she comes first period. I want her to stay at the beach house where she can look at the birds and the ocean waves and hear nature all around and be in the comfort of a house with central AC. I hope the rest of your family will join you tomorrow and that you have a lovely time. I hope we can get together soon and under better circumstances.

    Hahaha to Chris being a PITA. But I have to agree with him and second the Christmas Cookies request.:lickout:

    I am excited for your ring to arrive. Please share pics and share in your excitement when it comes. Blingy happiness.

    So update Debbie does not have Elspar and I was so upset to get our hopes up then dashed. She said come in tomorrow anyway with Francesca and she will start a gentler CHOP drug that she does have in stock. OK fine. We will make the almost 3 hour (sometimes more depending on traffic) trip for a less than excellent drug just because we have to get Francesca on a better drug than the chemo drugs she is currently on at home. Her Lymphoma is high grade (big cell) moreso than small cell so we are basically up the proverbial creek but there's a better chance at giving her some extra quality time if we can get her started asap on the stronger more effective for big cell high grade lymphoma. :pray:

    An hour later my sister calls me and said her boss Brian moved heaven and earth and is calling in favors and *might* be able to get someone who has Elspar to overnight the drug to the clinic. The only caveat is Brian doesn't know this person personally so he cannot swear it will be here tomorrow but he hopes it will be so instead of the early morning we are going to drive there late afternoon to increase the odds the drug will be at the office. Praying it is there and Francesca can get it administered tomorrow and that the drive isn't too awful for her. It's a long process because once it is administered we cannot go back home and have to wait 2 hours as one possible side effect is anaphylaxis and death. Debbie said g-d forbid if that happens that means she would not have made it through next week anyway.:cry2:

    Sorry I am so doom and gloom this past week girls. I know you understand and appreciate it. I do want life to go on normally here for all of you and please please please share your happy and good news. It really does lift my spirits to read of happy events and good news.
    Love you all and sending (((hugs))) to each and everyone of you.

    I'm with Austina totally. You and Greg are the best and I pray (and I rarely pray because I don't think I deserve it, but this deserves praying) the outcome is better for you and Greg and I prayed that Frankie is not in pain. xo

    @missy Francesca couldn’t get better parents than you and Greg. If love could heal her she would be all better. You and Greg are her family and she loves you so much...as much as you love her. I’m so hoping the drug arrives tomorrow...and it buys her precious time with you both...
    We have Guardianship for David because he’s an adult and needs someone to take care of him and make decisions. The courts here are so strict. I’m getting a home visit today from representatives (two) of the court...just routine...but it still makes me nervous. They’re coming at 4:30..I feel like I’m going to be sick...I work myself up...My friend is a psychologist..who says that it’s there to protect children and people of disabilities in case of neglect. I understand it but I feel like I’m going to be put under a microscope.
    I’ll be back later to say hi and catch up.
    My time in Rehoboth was so much fun. Thank you for wishing me a good time. It worked. :P2

    She’s so sweet Austina..I want to kiss that face...:love: I had to board Bailey today so I can watch Scott and Allie’s dog, Sammie. They’re going on vacation..She just had the equivalent ACL surgery so has to be taken care of with care so it heals. I’ve been through it with Bailey so they asked me. She can’t roughhouse with Bailey....and truthfully I can’t handle the two at one time..They’re both busy and guard their food. The place I bring Bailey is like a hotel...and he loves it..I look at it like this is his vacation. I’ll miss my fella...

    You are a sweetheart @Tekate! We already have guardianship but they come to the house periodically to check his living conditions. It went well but I could go for a nice big glass of wine! :lol:

    @Tekate Your prayers are heard and are just as good as everyone else. I don’t know why you would feel that way but you definitely deserve it [email protected] I can imagine all the prayers going up for sweet Francesca. My friends know about Francesca and added her to their prayers..We are praying so hard that the medicine makes it to your sister tomorrow.

    @Mamabean Good riddance to all official visitations, any time, everywhere!

    @missy Thank you for asking about my 'schedule'... - do I ever have any! I've taken up an interesting bit of work quite unrelated to what I have been doing recently, and forgot that days are approx. half as long now as they were when I was twenty. Nevermind... - there is nothing so serious going on. I am thinking of you, hoping that HRH doesn't know to dread her future as you do.

    @Tekate Happy to be ending this week, sure enough. I have a feeling I'll be getting back ten thousand times to my pile of paper till Monday, as ever. Then again, next week has a four day weekend (Thursday - ) & I'm counting on the expected hou-ha to take my mind off anything else then.

    ending the day

    Hi NIRDI’s!

    Missy, I hated to hear Francesca’s diagnosis. I hope they get the medicine in tomorrow; that is so nice of your sister’s call to work so hard to get it. That is good she eats a little bit every now and then and seems to be content. She knows you and Greg love her and that has to make her feel better.

    Austina, I bet a jam and cream donut is good. This is a new donut shop here and everyone is raving about how good their donuts are; I liked them on FB and they have a picture of their display case and I’d want to try about all of them. One at a time, eh? I hope you call with Shirley goes well, it sounds like it’s a challenging situation with her and her DIL. Oh no to Colin having to get on the roof and clean out the gutters. Dottie is so cute and looks quite relaxed there.

    Kate, have fun catching up with the family this weekend. I usually don’t hear from WF again until I get a shipping notice - then the glamour shots show up that evening. You probably won’t get anything until Monday - or that has been my experience. I am so anxious to see Ever. Christmas cookies sound great - are they sugar cookies?

    Mamabean, I am sorry you are so stressed about the court representative visit; I am sure it will be fine. I do understand why it’s necessary in some cases.

    Hi AV and Junebug.

    Marty is at the bar with some friends; I passed on going because I don’t want to hang out with Friday night crowds at the bar on a chilly and rainy night.

    Marty is probably going to rent that place for his gym. The owner is giving him a heck of a deal; his first 3 months are free so he can work on getting clients. Sounds too good to be true but Marty has a good BS meter so I am sure he’ll be cautious when they meet and discuss conditions. The owner has to have the place remodeled (new floor, redo the bathroom, redo the office but probably that’s it. Marty has to get a magnetic door lock and figure out what he needs to set up the place. He is very excited about it.

    Take care.
    Marcy

    @marcy No good thinking of donuts in a city where none worth eating exists! It seems that I need to be working on my own account - as Marty has set himself up to do; & this is so NOT me at all, I need a partner in arms... & these are thin on the ground (rant over - just starting the day appropriatedly late)

    Thank you so much girls for continuing to keep Francesca in your thoughts and prayers. Your loving comments and kind words matter to me more than I can say. We won't know if Debbie got the medicine till later this afternoon so we have to embark on the journey before we know. If she doesn't get that medicine we will do a milder CHOP medicine though the Elspar is a better med the more gentle med is still better than what we have her on currently for her type of cancer. It's going to be a long day. I might be able to check in from on the road and might need to for my sanity. As you can imagine I am anxious and jumpy and stressed inside but maintaining outer calm for Francesca.

    She ate super well at 3 AM, 4AM and 5 AM and is acting more like herself now. So of course I am terrified that we are about to change all that. But if we do nothing she might not even have a week left so that is why we are trying to give her some extra quality time. If it doesn't work, if she responds poorly to the IV chemo we will not attempt heroic measures. Rather we will give her peace. But we are going to try because there is a chance we can give her some extra quality time. It is possible. And if we cannot we will know we did what we could and before she starts suffering we will give her peace. I know it is the greatest gift we can give her when there are no other options left.

    HRH last night soaking up the last bit of sun as it was just setting. She loves the warmth of the sun. :halo:

    Thank you sweet Junie. (((Hugs))).


    Good luck marcy! I hope Marty rents that place and what a sweet deal. XOXO.

    Wise words @AV_ thank you for sharing. Yes that is a silver lining in this nightmare. Francesca doesn't know what is coming and doesn't fear it. I hope and pray that is true. I get what you mean when you say days are half as long now as when we were younger. Truer words never spoken. As I was saying to Greg yesterday how is it that this past week when we received the devastating diagnosis went so fast? Even as we did nothing but stay home to be with Francesca the hours flew by...thank you for thinking of us. I too am thinking of you and wishing you a lovely weekend. As HRH often says "what is a weekend?"

    Hi @Slick1 have a great time at the celebration this weekend. Hope you feel well.

    @Mamabean hope the home visit went well. Have a happy weekend.

    @Calliecake hope your kidney stone passed and you are free of any discomfort.

    @Tekate enjoy your wonderful family and have a great visit Kate the Great. Thank you for your kind words and love.

    @Austina hope your talk with Shirley goes well and have a good weekend. Enjoy.


    Have a good day girls. (((Hugs))).

    @missy, love the pics of Francesca, so sweet. I'm hoping everything works out today and she tolerates the treatment well. Sending lots of hugs and love to everyone.

    Calliecake, I am really sorry you are dealing with a kidney stone and I do hope you pass it very soon. It must be very hard having this hanging over you. Sending lots of healing vibes and hugs, please take care.

    The lettering thing is nothing fancy, just a calligraphy instruction book, a pad of paper, and some pens.

    @Mamabean, I'm glad the visit went well and it's all behind you ...it seems so silly in your case, but I guess there are those situations where people aren't being cared for as well as they should be, so in that sense it's a good thing. I can see where it would be very stressful though. I hope you had a lovely time in Rehoboth. So nice of you to watch Scott's dog, and it's adorable that Bailey loves his doggie hotel; I know it gives you peace of mind that he's happy.

    @marcy, like you I'm still happy with the look of my car too. I think one of the perks about being an adult is that we can do whatever we darn well please...I've been known to have ice cream for dinner on occasion. Exciting news about Marty's new space and it all sounds great, and I hope it all works out. Sending good thoughts that you're knees and feet aren't giving you much trouble.

    @Tekate, you made the right call on the Christmas cookies...nothing wrong with Christmas in June. You're a caring and loving mom. Have a fun time visiting Chris. And I'm so looking forward to you getting your ring, I hope everything stays on track.

    Oh, with the lettering...I'm getting the shape of the letters, my main problem is getting the words to go in a straight line horizontally, I keep going uphill. Kind of a silly thing to do, but it's relaxing...kind of like doodling.

    @canuk-gal, so nice you're having beautiful weather...it really does make a difference in how we feel and is very energizing.

    @_AV, hope your work is going well. How nice you have a 4 day holiday coming up. I hope you relax and do some fun things.

    @Austina, glad Colin was able to figure out where the wet spot was coming from and hopefully that's the end of that. It's a shame Shirley is feeling her dil is being bossy; I'm sure her dil is just trying to help her. I guess Shirley is going through an adjustment period, and I hope she can get used to her new life. Love the pic of Dottie, she is such a sweetie.

    Nothing big planned for today, dh and I will probably just watch golf and putz around the house. Last night ds stopped by and we got take out and watched an episode of Broadchurch; it was very good.

    Love to all xxx

    @missy I’m thinking you must be getting ready to get on the road. Fingers and toes are crossed they get the medicine in today. I loved seeing all her photos snuggled in your bed. She looks very comfortable there..I’m sure she is loving all the extra attention she is getting from you and Greg. Anxiously waiting to hear how it goes today...xxxooo
    @Calliecake I heard kidney stones are horrible to pass. A friend of mine had quite a few....She said it was definitively worse than childbirth. Childbirth was pretty bad in my view so I hope that’s not true in your case. I hope you don’t need surgery...and it passes easily.
    @Tekate..That is so funny that you made Christmas cookies for Chris. They never grow up when they want something from mom! Wow! Your hunka diamond ring EVER is coming Tuesday! I want to see that pretty on your finger! :love:
    @marcy That is some deal that Marty doesn’t need to pay for the space for three months..That’s crazy! I hope it turns out to be everything he wants it to be..My hygienist is also rough...I can’t eat anything for a while afterwards. I hope it feels better by now..what kind of donut did you have for dinner? :lickout:
    @Austina..We had tons of rain too...I hope your house is rainproof! Our isn’t in the basement. Today is the only day we can test out where the rain is coming in because it’s a dry day today. My husband is going to flood the window to see if it comes in that way. We had so much rain I had towels and those super sponge rags lined up to keep it from spreading. That’s great Colin was able to clear the gutters on the roof. That would make me nervous having him up there though. I could go for a donut right now..but I must be good! :roll2:
    @av Thank you for wishing I don’t have to have those court visits anymore. The people that came were actually very nice. They are a married couple who volunteers to do these home visits. ...He was a former biggie with UNICEF...and lived all over the world protecting children and mothers. It was funny...I could tell he liked me and was just enjoying his coffee..but she was the hardliner who kept asking me more detailed questions..He kept trying to have her end the questions but she kept going. They stayed after for coffee and cookies..so I think it went well...
    Your cookie looks more like a focaccia bread since it has herbs and olive oil on it. Is there sugar on it? I’m hungry now!
    @junebug17 Have you been practicing with your lettering kit? What have you planned for this weekend?
    My visit with my girlfriends in Rehoboth was wonderful! We really missed being all together. Two of them live there now. Judy drive us to Bethany Beach which is only ten minutes away for dinner. I liked it because it was quieter..but still busy enough to be fun. That night we went back to Sharon’s house and talked until past midnight. I wake up at 5:30 during the week so I usually try to get in bed by 9:30-10 if I can...Staying up to midnight is late for me! I was the second one up at six the next morning. We were going out to breakfast but the other girls were sleeping in so Sharon rummaged around in her fridge and put together s great breakfast...She made chicken sausages which she cut up into little chunks, quiche, an oatmeal blueberry bake which was fabulous, and cut up watermelon. After we had breakfast we went shopping and walked around in the boardwalk and soaked in the view. We had lunch overlooking the water. They sat with their backs to the view so we could have the best view. The sliding glass door was open so we could feel the breeze and enjoy..It was a little chilly but okay. I forgot to bring my jacket. It’s amazing you need it there...After lunch we packed up and I drove the girls home. I don’t trust them driving..They’re a little scary when they drive..so I always tell them I love to drive and please let me drive...:lol:
    I took one crummy crooked picture from the restaurant...

    Hi NIRID’s!

    AV, darn that you don’t have any good donut shops there. We didn’t make it out there today because we had carrot cake with cream cheese frosting for dessert at lunch; that was enough sweets for today. It was delicious though. Marty is certainly determined to start up his gym again; I am crossing my fingers and toes for him. I hope you find your path as well.

    Missy, I hope your sister got the medicine in okay and it helps sweet Francesca. You and Greg have done everything you can to make her comfortable and give her as much time as possible. Keeping your in my thoughts. Love the pictures of the cute kitties.

    Junebug, I am glad you still like your Macan too. I couldn’t be happier with it and still love driving it. We’ve been watching golf this afternoon too. Nice that DS stopped by to visit. My knees and feet are holding up okay considering all the running around we’ve done today. I am going to lift tomorrow though.

    Mamabean, that is too bad your hygienist is rough too. My mouth finally feels fine today. We didn’t have a donut today but for dinner the other night it was yellow cake with chocolate frosting. I hope you find where the rain is coming in to your basement. We are getting rain every afternoon for the foreseeable future. There’s snow in the mountains in Colorado today. Your visit with your girl friends sounds like a lot of fun and what a wonderful view in your pretty picture. I am glad you enjoyed yourself. I don’t like to ride with my friends either; I always offer to drive.

    We’ve been busy today. After breakfast Marty and I discussed his lists of things he needs or to do to get his gym going in July. Then we look at how much it will cost and what he needs versus what he wants. We ran to Lowes because he needed a pressure valve to get out sprinklers going plus they had the older version of the Dyson V6 Cyclone on sale for $189 plus he gets his 10% military discount making it $170. We picked that up for his gym. I was busy picking out flowers for our flower pots while he picked up his stuff. Lowes was out of those valves to we ran headed to one of two places Lowes said he could get it from. The first one had it but could only sell things to businesses with a wholesale license. We then had 13 minutes to get to the other place before they closed - luckily our town isn’t huge so we made it with 4 minutes to spare. They had the valve and sprinklers are running. He said he’ll plant the flowers tomorrow.

    We went out for lunch enjoying carrots and cheese for dessert disguised as carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. It was delicious. Then we stopped at the grocery store primarily because he accepted a dinner invitation for us tomorrow night and they requested I bring one of my cheesecakes.

    I ran some flowers out to the cemetery for father’s day and have been working on laundry. I think I’ll do my lifting tomorrow.

    Take care.
    Marcy

    @missy Thinking of you and hoping today goes smoothing for Francesca. It’s going to be along day stressful day. Please reach out if you need support. This is a difficult time, Please know you have lots of people in your corner to help you when you feel overwhelmed. Hugs honey

    @junebug17 , I’ve always want to try my hand at calligraphy. One of my friends was quite good at it when we were younger. It looked like it would be relaxing if you knew what how to do it. How nice that your son dropped by and the three of you had dinner together. DH and I sitting here watching golf. Pebble is one of his favorite courses. Have you see the video of PGA Amy and Gary Woodland, If you haven’t seen it Junie, please google it. It’s so heartwarming.

    @Tekate, Have a great time with your family this weekend. Only a couple more days until Ever arrives!!! You mentioned last week that you worried that Chris didn’t get equal attention. Honey you make things equal.... Christmas cookies. These are the little things you do to show him how much you love and care about him. Chris knows he is loved Kate. My niece called last night to tell me her daughter (who was born right before Autie) cannot fit in her 3 month size clothes. She wore them a week and is now too long for them. We are planning on getting together next week and I can’t wait to see her. I’m hoping the kidney stone is gone by then.

    @Austina , Sorry about having to deal with roof problems before your trip. I hope all goes well when you visit with Shirley. Honestly Austina, I would be dreading it. It doesn’t sound like Shirley will be very receptive to hearing anything other than you agree with her. It sounds like you are between a rock and a hard place, which is always an uncomfortable place to be. please take time for you and Colin and have a great time on your trip. You deserve to have a fun trip with your husband.

    @Mamabean, I’m glad you had such a nice time with your girlfriends and we’re able to get away. A group of my girlfriends go to Florida for a few days most years. I’ve always believed you can get thru anything life throws at you if you have a great group of girlfriends in your corner. You worried for nothing with the home visit. You are a wonderful mom. I understand why they require the home visits but please try not to stress about them in the future. The want to make sure David is loved and well cared for. You have covered the love and care in an abundance when it comes to David. He is so lucky he has you Joanne. I was really freaked out about the stone last night at about 10:00. Going thru pain worse than childbirth with a Vicodin for the pain isn’t sounding appealing at all. My SIL called a few minutes ago to tell me one of her friends has had them before and she said it was worse than childbirth. I have no idea what I’m really in for since I haven’t had a baby. I just keep thinking they give you an epidural for childbirth. I sure hope it passes fast when it finally happens.

    @marcy, This studio for Marty definitely sounds like it was meant to be. It’s so nice when things like this happen.
